The NES rises from the dead
Dead Tomb is a brand-new fun, point and click adventure game that will take you back to the heyday of retro gaming.
Your employer sends you on a study that takes you back in time, but as fate would have it, you find yourself in a serious predicament. A malfunction in your ship forces you to land in Egypt 1300BC where luckily you spot a huge pyramid you can set your craft down on. Well, maybe you are not so lucky?
It should be an easy fix. One you have done so many times before. It should be only a short time before you are back to your journey, right? Not so fast. The Pharaoh Seti I’s soldiers discover your appearance in their land and take matters into their own hands. The next thing you know, you wake up with a huge bump on your head and deep inside the pyramid.
Where are you? Why are you here? Can you get out and return to your mission? Time will tell…
This brand-new game can be pre-ordered on Nintedo Switch starting Jan. 19th with a retail release to follow on Jan. 26, 2024. Dead Tomb will also be the first physical NES release from 8-Bit Legit, as the game will be part of the “Final Edition” series that is limited to just 300 copies.
CollectorVision and Acclaim are veterans of the retro and modern development communities, with previous releases that include the Sydney Hunter series and lots of releases for the ColecoVision console. They have been creating and releasing in the retro space since 2008 and published their first modern game “Sydney Hunter and the Curse of the Mayan” in 2019.

Dead Tomb was developed over a two-year period by the team at CollectorVision/Acclaim, who all share a passion for the Point and Click genre. Dead Tomb is based on a game called ‘Temporel Inc’ which was only available on the defunct Videoway cable service system in Canada and in some parts of the United Kingdom during the late 80’s and 90’s. Sadly, none of the Videoway games had been preserved, all lost in time…
